There will also be informative conference sessions at the start of Tuesday and Wednesday, touching on topics that are highly relevant to Asian animation producers. These include Growing up with YouTube Kids, which will feature an intel briefing by Sanoop Luke on the performance of the YouTube Kids app, an upcoming YouTube Original series, and a growing shift that’s seeing some native YouTube creators taking on traditional TV-style production. Another session, entitled Reaching New Heights with Shorts, will check in on new development models for shorter formats that meet an increasing multiplatform and off-air demand for bite-sized entertainment.

Hosted by Screen Queensland and Brisbane Marketing, the 2016 Asian Animation Summit is owned and produced by Kidscreen together with presenting partners KOCCA (Korea), MDeC (Malaysia), and SIPA and DITP (Thailand).
